It must be the creative juices within me but I simply can't resist the urge to cash in on the roaring success of Caryl Churchill's hideous 10 minute exercise in verbal masturbation now playing to brain dead audiences at London's Royal Court Theatre so I'm writing my own play.
The working title is "Seven Arab Children".
I haven't written down a single word yet but the concept behind the play is that it will be narrated by Arab parents telling their children stories based on the plots of a popular Palestinian children's television programme "Pioneers of Tomorrow" featuring animal characters like rats, bunnies, bees, bears and such and every child will be given basically the same message - that Jews are descended from pigs and monkeys and that when they grow up their mission in life will be to destroy neighbouring Israel and to kill Jews everywhere.
There's little doubt that the Royal Court Theatre will snap up this play. The big selling feature is that, with its ten minute duration, it's just enough to satisfy the usual attention span of the target audience of British extreme left, the IJV contingent (pity about Pinter), neo-Nazis and jihadists.
My only concern is that, unlike Churchill's play, mine is based solely upon fact which might not be to the liking of the Royal Court Theatre's po faced impresarios.
